Matthew Fox Needs Rehab


At some point you know that Matthew Fox is going to have to go to rehab. Who wants to hire a guy who has a booze problem. Late Wednesday, he was officially charged with DUI and driving without a license for his adventures in Oregon last week. This comes on the heels of his adventures in Cleveland where he got so drunk that he assaulted a bus driver. When you are so drunk that you randomly assault people and shove them and are drinking and driving and you know he is doing it way more than he has been caught, then you need help. He has always managed to keep all his demons inside, but as he gets older and gets less work they are starting to escape. Go talk to the cast of Party of Five. The guy was losing it even back then. I get the feeling he will publicly say he is going to rehab but he does not believe he needs it so it will not stick. This is going to end up in tragedy.

He was the answer to at least one blind, wasn't he? I didn't want to believe it. *sigh*

And quilte possibly tragedy for an innocent
family, if he is driving drunk.

rejectedcarebear said...

He isn't adjusting well to life off the island. Cmon Jack!

Rose said...

He has fallen so far, and it taints Lost a but for me. He looks like he is in his early 50's rather then mid 40's. He has two children to think about, and what kind of example he wants to set.

Hey Matt, your daughter is going to marry a younger you if you don't pull your head out of your ass.

Rose said...

When I was looking up his age, I read he lost his virginity at 12. :o He's a regular Chuck Bass.

EmEyeKay said...

It sincerely bums me out to think of him as a bad man. Alcoholic doesn't equal bad man, but his actions of late aren't cool. Get your buns to rehab, stat.

(Soft spot in heart for Jack.)

enty, we, your loyal readers can't go talk to the cast of party of five. how about if you do it and then spill to us?

that said, I feel sorry for the guy and sorrier for his victims and his family.

NernersHuman said...

Oh, Charlie.

goheels83 said...

Oh, Jack.

Matt Fox = he has demons, just needs to go to rehab

Rihanna = stupid lowlife who's as pathetic as Chris Brown

The double standards are enough to make a semi-sane scream.

Barton Fink said...

Does he need rehab, or a deep spiritual and mental transformation that makes him realize he needs to change his entire way of life? From what I can see of his career, he has the capacity to go to bed and wake up to go to work. High-functioning people with chemical dependency problems need big change, need to change the Who They Are thing, and in his case who he is seems to be a lot of "the law doesn't apply to me" and "I can do anything I want."

Elizabeth said...

He can't taint Lost for me because that was a great ride. But he lives in Bend, OR so I'm guessing his behavior is a lot worse than we know, we just don't see all of it.

Tempestuous Grape said...

Barton Fink, I'm a highly-functioning person with dependency problems and I completely agree with your comment.

Lauren said...

He used to be so hot. What a bummer. His looks are gone, and now he looks like Beaker from Sesame Street.

nettalovesrobin said...

Wow how old is he? He looks like an old man. Such a shame!

Grey said...

As a Matthew Fox fan this disappoints me :(

chickieboo said...

He looks like Mitt Romney in that photo.

auntliddy said...

I remember reading an interview Fox did where he said after lost Im done. Going home and taking a long rest. And that he and his wife had been together forever snd wld always be together, they understood each other. So I think he means to not work, but I dont think he means to be an alcoholic. Hope he gets his shit together

Laura said...

he looks about 20 years older than he did in lost

pilly said...

Rehab and a new hair style

Abby said...

Am I the only person who has no idea who this guy is?? I guess I don't watch the right shows.

Maja. With a J. said...

This reminds me - I have to do a Lost re-watch soon!

skeeball said...

@Maja, i am so with you. Love Lost!! I really miss it.

RenoBlondee said...

@Maja and @skeeball
Me too! That scene at the end with Jack and the dog.....OMG TEARS me up every time!

RJ said...

Wow. Alcohol is not being kind to his looks! I used to think he was really hot. I hope he gets some help before he kills someone.

- said...

Maybe he should come out of the closet, and relieve his stress. Sounds like he definitely needs to do something before someone gets hurt.

The Black Cat said...

He needs to go back! (to the island)

Jeri said...

He has never appealed to me. I think he has always gave off bad vibes.

Rose said...

He's 45. It's not so much this taints Lost, but Jack Shepard was my favorite so he taints that character a bit for me. Lost will always be one of my favorite shows.

It just might be time for a re-watch, except most of S6.

misspoppypants said...

Didn't he get acquitted or charges dismissed for drunkenly shrieking at a bus driver and then ounching her in the crotch or something? How was that not on camera if it occurred? Most buses have cameras. Going light on celebrities helps NO ONE. If he really did that, they've hurt everyone involved by not making him accountable. Plus, tired of the rest of us richly experiencing every single consequence of a bad idea or mistake while celebrities get 15 strikes. If they are guilty and it can be proven, treat them like Joe America!

WUWT? said...

On Party of Five, his parents are dead because of a druck driver, and then he beats up his brother for driving drunk when that's what destroyed their family. Sigh. I wish his life could learn from that script.

Barton Fink said...

@Abby, I too did not watch either of his big shows, so I only know him from Emmy shows and the punching the bus driver thing.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I guess b/c I loved Party of Five and LOST, I've always had a soft spot for Charlie/Jack. I hope Matthew goes to rehab. Sad to hear these stories about him.

ardleighstreet said...

I heard that is why Terry O'Quinn and he did not get along. When he was off set Matthew was drunk and was not very nice.
